    How long until a listing appears in search results and when will images show?

    Hi,

    So I have literally just verified my first listing and it has gone live and I can see it on the map. (here) - This looks really empty with none of the images I added to my local listing though?

    How long does it usually take for the listing to start appearing in search engines for my term? It has plenty of citations and should appear but what is the average time?

    When I search the business name (here) I can see the listing though, which is nice.

    Thanks

    Nick

    Hi Nick,

    With the old Google Places Dashboard photos can take a month or so to go live.

    Average time to start appearing in results for search terms can vary depending on competitiveness of the industry and the search term. Anywhere from never to several months.

    Keep building citations, earning reviews, and keep up-to-date with the quality guidelines and you are on a good path. Onsite optimization is key as well. Make sure you are optimizing your site for the search terms you want to rank for....duh

    Listing is now live BUT Google have adjusted the address

    I have building citations but now the google listing is live it has changed the address from:

    107 Vicarage Ln to 107 Vicarage Lane

    It has also added a 2nd line to the address (one before the city)

    Should I go through and change my citations which had Lane and didn't have the second line?

    It also has the phone number with +44 24 rather than 024

    Should I go through and change the citations / website to match Google?

    Thanks very much, so the pictures go through automatically from the maps listing?

    Not sure what you mean. The pictures will (eventually) be live on your G+ Local page as long as you have them uploaded to the Google Places Dashboard.

    Yep, I have put them on the dashboard and they show up but they just don't appear on the G+ listing. I didn't know if I needed to do anything but you have just answered that.

    I will sit, wait and hope they appear and in the meantime build some reviews.

    Re: Listing is now live BUT Google have adjusted the address

    Hi Nick, hard to help without seeing the listing and I know you put the listing in another thread but others would not necessarily know that and it's hard finding threads and going back and forth. Plus requests for help on a specific listing should be in the help thread.

    So to help you better I'm combining your 2 posts and moving them down to help then will try to help you there.

    Nick added this to your other thread since we needed to see the link and to keep all your Qs together.

    You said Google changed Ln to Lane: I don't understand. It's displaying Ln for me.

    "It has also added a 2nd line to the address (one before the city)"

    Can you be more specific. I don't know what this means. The address is all on one line. What part did Google add?

    "It also has the phone number with [COLOR=#000000][FONT=arial]+44 24 rather than 024"

    I don't know how phone #s are formatted there. Is the number Google shows correct? Does that # get to you? Is it just a different way of formatting your #? Or is the # totally wrong now?

    After you answer the above we can try to help you more.

    Thanks, Linda

    Re: How long until a listing appears in search results and when will images show?

    IMPORTANT - I meant to add this in above post.

    Your location looks residential although I can't tell for sure which is yours because the marker is kinda in the middle of the street. Is your office in your home?

    I see you did set up a service area. Did you also set it to hide your address? You must, it's against guidelines to have your address showing.

    Although maybe you set it up correctly but if it's a brand new listing it can take a few days for the address to be hidden.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    EDITED TO ADD: Just found your other help thread about verification and saw this was only verified today.

    Can you check to be sure you did the service area section correctly and it's set to hide your address? I can't really tell you how or where to look because there are 2 totally different dashboards right now. If you can show a screenshot of that area of your dashboard we can double check for you.
